Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida brings the holiday magic of The Nutcracker

Miami, Fl.- Snowflakes, sugarplums, naughty little boys, and magical dolls! The charm of the Holidays fascinates all audiences, as Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida presents the classic ballet “The Nutcracker” to Tchaikovsky’s popular score based on the tale of Ernest Hoffman. The critically acclaimed unique production, choreographed and directed by Ballet Master Vladimir Issaev preserves the Russian tradition and serves as an alternative to those who already have seen Balanchine’s version.

This professional ballet company features already renowned dancers in the principal roles such as Mary Carmen Catoya, Daniel Sarabia, Lillian Hill, Hinano Eto and Kazuya Arima, along rising stars Janis Liu, Zihan Min, and Kevin Zong. The engaging choreography - from the fun of the party scene – to the harrowing battle scene- to the enchanting kingdom of the sweets – is guaranteed to entertain any age. Not only it is the most popular ballet enjoyed by all audiences around the world during this time of the year but it also serves as an introduction to ballet for the very young audiences.

The opening performance will take place on December 9 at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center running Saturday, December 10 and Sunday December 11 to then move to Parker Playhouse with a Nutcracker Gala on Friday, December 16th, offering a unique way to experience the magic of ballet while supporting the Company's programs. People will enjoy a selection of wine and hors d'oeuvres, and the chance to bid on silent auction items that range from donations from weekend getaways, fine jewelry, and art pieces, followed by the performance. Two more performances follow on December 17 & 18 to close the Nutcracker season for the enjoyment of the entire family.

Don't miss the opportunity to share the excitement and charm of the great tradition of the holidays with Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida during their extraordinary performances of "The Nutcracker."
